Anikos Kapros has the SLOWEST serve I have ever seen! Goddamn I think my ten year old sister can sever harder than that (she has some very nice groundstrokes though.

Unfortunately I can't watch it.

Someone said Aniko has improved her 2nd serve, but judging from the stats alone (average speed is 63 MPH) this doesn't seem to be true.

OMG Aniko wins more points with her 2nd than with her 1st serve. Justine

Aniko's slow serves are giving Justine fits. Whenever Aniko gets a serve above 90 mph, Justine hits a great return.
maybe that's the secret to success on the WTA tour: a really bad serve?
It doesn't look like Aniko pronates her wrist at all.
Still she does a great job of counterpunching and staying in the point.

63 MPH, the guy w/ Tracy Austin calls it a "country club serve"

Bad match from justine, but she came through. Kapros was pushing her around the court when the rallies started.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I was pretty impressed with Kapros's groundstrokes...She reminded me of Dementieva, great hard ans falt groundstrokes with a bad secondserve...But this seem to work vs Justine, she ahs a lot of problems returning those serves...

I was astonished when Anikos broke back two times in the first set.

Yep, odd how Justine attacks and crushes Serena´s second serves and some Aniko Kapros can give her fits with a second serve barely worth that name!

Serena girl...take notice. Start hitting those second serves in the 50´s range and you´ll be aight on clay.

Always bet on black!
